Urban Outreach Foundation has been providing innovative conferences, resources and consulting to the African American church for over 50 years.
Affiliated with UMI (Urban Ministries, Inc.), the largest media and publishing firm serving African American churches, the Conference on Community Development brings together a select group of leaders and participants to gain insight into best practices, models, and strategies for economic and community development.

Urban Outreach has reviewed many models around the country to bring the best experiences of the Black church to the rest of the church.
Housing, business development, resources for youth and many other community building projects have been identified and will be showcased in this conference in “TED Talk” type presentations. Additional sessions will showcase successful models in entrepreneurship and other community services, including large and small markets as well as larger and smaller churches.
